Step back in time at Heijokyu Ruins, an ancient Japanese capital from the Nara period and the first historical attraction in Japan declared a World Heritage Site. In 710, the capital, modeled on the capital of Chinese Tang Dynasty, was established around present-day Nara. Covered by rice fields for centuries, the settlement was rediscovered in the late 1990s. The palace, once the center of the city, houses the imperial residence, the hall for national ceremonies, and bureaucratic offices. The site also features two gates, a history museum, and an exhibit hall with thousands of archaeological items on display.

平城宮跡をバックにしたセットでのトゥーランドットを観に伺いました。 その巨大さと美しさに見惚れてしまいました。奈良は遺跡が点在するので、いい機会でした。朱雀門から歩くこと5分。街道沿いの草むらの遠くに見える平城宮跡が何とも言えない感覚です。You asked to see Turandot in a set back to the heijo Palace site.
